KS1 Reading Moderation

This chart provides information about the criteria for assessment for each standard linked to the 2017 reading test questions.

Evidence Gathering Grids - EGGs updated to meet the requirements of the 2017/8 assessment frameworks for end of KS1 and KS2.

Yr1, Yr2, Yr3/4 and Yr5/6

The idea of these sheets is that they are used as an on-going assessment to ensure that gaps are identified early and plugged with future teaching sequences. 

There is no expectation that schools will use the following end of KS grids. We are providing them because we said we would at subject leader meetings.

KS1 grid and KS2 grid. They have been updated for 2017/18.
 
We also used crib sheets for the information needed from the curriculum to make judgements.
KS1 crib sheet , KS1 crib sheet alphabetically organised and KS2 crib sheet. These have been updated for 2017/18.

Each statement can now be assessed .  Once this has been completed we now recommend that you make a judgement about whether a child is 'on track' to achieve national expectations or 'not on track yet'. Remember that for Yr2 and Yr6 all the   performance descriptors need to be achieved as well as the ones that precede the standard you assess the child at.
  •        Emerging
  •        Some evidence but very limited
  •         With adult support (guided, scaffolded, innovated)
  • Towards independence
  •    Some evidence of being able to apply independently but not consistently
  •    Evidence of effective independent application close to the point of teaching (Invent)
  •     National expectations
  •   Evidence of independent application in all writing contexts
  •     Greater depth
     
    Evidence of the ability to make choices and apply independently for impact and effect. 
           
    Where the words some, many and most appear, we use the STA descriptions.  Most means 'generally correct with occasional errors' and some means it is 'demonstrated correctly on occasion but is not consistent or frequent'. Many will be inbetween some and most.
